After continuing to watch our piss poor defense I have come to the conclusion that despite out crappy LB play, much of that will be remedied with the return of Jon Beason. Despite our crappy DT play, I think that will be remedied with the young guys getting another year under their belt and the return of Edwards. I like our options at DE with Johnson, Hardy, and Applewhite.

Our offense is clicking and IDT we can spend yet another 1st round pick on an OT only a few years after picking Otah. If we want to cut bait then thats fine but don't waste a 1st rounder replacing him...just suck it up.

Bottom line is that we are still in a division with Matt Ryan and Drew Brees. We need guys that can cover. So if one of the CBs explodes then that is the pick you go with. Claiborne has great size and someone compared him to Woodson the other day on TV...which I like. If he is gone and we have a chance at Blackmon or Jeffery (whoever looks to be better then gotta consider it...too talented not to). If all 3 of those guys are gone then start thinking about the best LB or possibly moving down to acquire more picks.


I'm in line with your thinkin'

IMO the only offensive early draft we make is Matt Kalil if he falls to us......too good and fills the Gross aging and Otah injured void. If he is not there then we go Secondary and OLB's. Plain and Simple!

You can never ever have too many good CB's.

Carolina still in the crop of 2-6 teams and currently sits 7th in the draft, that's subject to change though. There isn't a WR worth the risk of a top 10 pick in this draft imo, there's ton of CB's and ton of OLB's. That said there's only a few players that I'd take in the top 10 for the Panthers that have a realistic chance of being around at 7th or 8th.

Either of the two big time LT's in the draft, Brown (despite what people here think, he's a top 10 player in this draft), Blackmon (It's a reach, but it's worth the risk around 7-8th) and Claiborne or trading back into the draft to pick up an extra 2nd and get a 3rd rounder back.

Kuechly is purely an MLB or ILB in the NFL, doesn't have elite speed that you want in an OLB running a 4-3. I like Luke and think he'll make a nice 4-3 Mike, but I don't think he can play either of the OLB spots in the NFL.

Given that, it kinda gives the edge to Brown because he can probably run both at the Will & MLB

I love Zach Brown. But I don't know how much I love him to be picking him top 10.

Yea I think so, he's the best LB in the draft. Brown has a ton of talent and fits perfectly at the WLB spot. He has the frame to add 5-10 more pounds, runs a 4.4 - 4.48, plays the pass and run well. He also can play all three LB spots and if he doesn't start would provide some instant help on ST coverage wise with his speed.

There's a reason most draft sites have him as the top rated LB (by a large margin at that too) and one of the ten best draft prospects in this draft. That's elite size and speed.

Creeping back towards the top of the board...Blackmon is becoming more and more of a possibility
